Here is my final wrap up post for challenges in 2010…
Thank you to Book Chick City for hosting the Thriller-Suspense Challenge for 2010. The goal was 12 books (to see links to from participants for ALL REVIEWS for this challenge, go here). I reached my goal right at the end of the year. My favorite read for this challenge was a toss up between 31 Bond Street by Ellen Horan, City of Veils by Zoe Ferraris, and The Search by Nora Roberts. You can see all the books I read with links to their reviews by visiting this post on my blog.
Once again, I enjoyed participating in Literary Escapism’s New Authors Challenge. I set a goal of reading 50 new to me authors in 2010 and (as in the past) I exceeded this goal. I read 75 new to me authors (a whopping 78% of my total reading!). You can see all the authors I read this year with links to reviews of their books here.
Teddy’s ARC Challenge helped me keep on top of all the review books that came to my doorstep in 2010. I wanted to read at least 25 ARCs and I exceeded that number. You can see my list of books read for this challenge (with links to reviews) on this post. Although I will continue to be overwhelmed with ARCs and review books in 2011, I’m not officially signing up for this challenge this year…but, I’ll continue to track my reads!
Lurv A La Mode hosted the Year of the Historical Challenge and I hoped to read 12 books for this challenge. Alas, I didn’t make that goal…but I did read 10 historical fiction books in 2010. My favorite of the year was a toss up between By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan and The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt. Check out all the books I read with links to their reviews here.
I’m not joining as many challenges in 2011 – but I will be posting a few…so stay tuned!
